I was walking out of the facility (after a class) I've worked at for a few years and happened to encounter the fellow wearing the "General Manager" ID of a national chain. I had been told that morning there had been a change in management, the facility was being bought and schedules being prepaired for the fall... and that I might wish to talk with "whomever" from said chain to discuss additional (sic new) classes. The old classes would remain in place run by a completely different group that now merely shares the building.
I would have wished for a bit more time and might have choosen the time and place of our meeting, but he seemed decetly interested... and gave a ~good~ vibe.
I have zero experience teaching within any "franchise" so thought I'd ask folks with far more experience, the pro's & potential cons teaching thereof. I cannot imagine the facility being hugely or obscenely successful given a huge number of factors, but hey that's not my job
As long as they do not require any kind of "music", or interfere with the material I teach. I can't think of anything that should raise alarms yet anyway. But having checked other facilities relatively locally that seem to offer a parallel martial arts program they do market martial arts rather bizarrely...
That specific marketing I could see being truly problematic , if mandatory from "corporate" to offer "martial arts" classes...
